On tap at Gnarly Barley. Sweet pineapple and strawberry and overripe orange aroma with apricot notes. Slightly hazy copper under a lacy white, thin sheet. Flavour is salty with hops that are a blend of old and new world; apricot, pineapple, pine, strawberry, grapefruit. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth and a little warming.

Light orange in color with a white lasting foam. Aroma is melon and tropical fruit. Mango, guava, and dragon fruit flavors with a significant bitterness in the finish.

A nice solid IPA. The flavor is hoppy with a quite bitter finish. A little too astringent for my wife, but I found it enjoyable.

can @ House of 1000 Beers / New Kensington PA --- $5.25 for this can - I expect Nirvana. Aroma of herbal and citruas hops + light malt. Clear medium / light amber color, frothy white head that stays at three-fingers, globs and bands of lace. Taste is a perfect half and half between caramel malt and an assortment of hops, primarily citrus. Medium carbonation completes the deal. It seems like a strong malty brew, but then it switches to a hoppy brew - each swallow seems to contradict the other,...and yes,... the alcohol is mysteriously hidden, so care must be given. Complex, balanced, not heavy at all, a superb brew.

fuzzcro (295) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Impressive brew. No distinctive aroma that i could catch. Deep amber orange...almost what I would call a pumpkin color. Tall white head laces nicely. Smooth flavor with enough sweetness to conceal any bitter with just a hint of dryness at the end.

On tap. Pours amber with fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is full and slightly crisp. Enormous amount of citrusy hops is balanced on the palate with caramel malt and tropical fruit. Finish is long, dry, and very hoppy. Excellent brew.

growler6 (170) - Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Floral, citrus, caramel, oak and vanilla aromas on the nose. More of the same as it goes down, giving way to the warming alcohol, pine, tobacco and bitterness. Enjoyable.
